Another Voice Talent Gone: Jo Stafford

Some of you will be old enough to remember Jo Stafford.

If you're not, then you should listen to this, her best-seller, which was a song sung to soldiers serving overseas.

Absolutely brilliant singing. Every well-known rule of vocal singing is followed to a "T", especially the rule that 'text rules.' And she's so good that you don't notice she's following the rules.

Instead, she OWNS the rules.

Just like Fitzgerald, and Sinatra, and a very few others.
